is venturing out of the swing states today. romney is in pennsylvania trying to pluck that state from the grasp of president barack obama. 39 days until the election. pennsylvania is one of the states that is leaning toward the president, but romney is predicting an upset. >> i've got a little secret here, that is that obama campaign thinks that pennsylvania is in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania, we're going to take the white house. >> well, wolf blitzer with us now. so, you know, from washington, wolf, we have seen romney confine his campaign to the nine battleground states. why is he now taking a shot at this state, pennsylvania, which clearly seems to be leaning obama? >> according to the public polls, obama is doing really well in pennsylvania. maybe he's got some private polls that he's doing inside his campaign that shows some other trends developing in pennsylvania. i haven't seen any public polls that would indicate he's got a shot in pennsylvania. i also haven't seen any indication that the romney camp
states that mr. romney finally sold those shares. he sold his shares the day before he appeared at this republican debate in iowa. i don't know if he thought he would get asked about them or not. now all of this it notes that he's not necessarily personally making the call on these investments. his money is kept in a blind trust. that said the idea you don't have to answer for investments made through a blind trust has been debunked on american politics. i thought this guy's argument was the most convincing on that. >> the blind trust is an age-old rouge to say you can tell the blind trust what it can and can't do. >> those rules include go ahead and invest my mitt romney bucks in the chinese oil company that calls itself a weapon and does business with iran just to spite us. while you're running for president, do that. you know, the election has already started. almost half the states in the country, people can get access to a ballot and vote by mail if they want to. you can do in-person early voting in idaho, south dakota and vermont. that also starts on thursday of this week
of the nine swing states. journal marist poll showing romney trailing the president by 7 points in new hampshire. romney trailing obama by two points in north carolina, that's within the margin of error. and same in nevada, two-point spread for the president. that's within the margin of error. so none of those polls really urge shattering, but certainly showing that president obama is -- has an advantage in these swing states. >> yeah. you know, the one that is i little surprising to me is north carolina. i would have thought romney would be doing better. the president, he carried north carolina the last time, but by a tiny, tiny margin. so that's a little surprising that even though it is within the margin of error, 48/46, he's still ahead in north carolina right now. if romney can't win north carolina, he's going to be in deep, deep trouble because that's a state, i assumed was going to be going for the republican candidate this time. maybe, you know, holding the democratic convention in charlotte energized that democratic base in north carolina. maybe that will rereally help them. i
, that it's a state that is very accessible to mitt romney, a state of that obama could hold him and he holds all six of the states in the rust belt midwest area combined with only four electoral states short of victory. so critical for the romney strategy to hold a state of ohio. that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is probably up to about a four or five-point lead in the state. if you look at some the data they're on the bottom you see that the worst group for obama in 2008 was the white working-class. is hope is that he would be able to expand at margin quite a bit. that's really what romney's strategy is about. you wouldn't think it would be that hard itself. it's been hard hit economically and a lot of ticked off factory workers by giving it would've been an ideal place in which to sort of cell the romney rant. that doesn't turn out to be the case. at this point when you look at polls, the new breakouts, romney is not anywhere close to driving off that margin among white working-class voters. he is at best a few points better than mccain ran in 2008. and he is do
poll had romney eight points behind president obama in ohio. in another swing state florida, romney trails by four points. this map shows projections of the steep climb for romney without ohio he would need every other battleground state at the same time he needs to stay on message. yesterday at a rally in ohio romney backtracked a bit on the comment he made about the 47%. he said he doesn't have to worry about. >> i want to be president of all the people of america. i want to help all the people of america. you don't get into a race like this with myself and my family and do the work and commitment that we've put forward without the passion to help all of america. >> reporter: today in ohio the candidates are expected to clash over china. the obama campaign will hit romney for investments in chinese companies. after ohio the next face off will be the first presidential debate october 3rd. kira klapper, abc7 news. >>> 5:05. prosecutors say they will not file charges against the san jose police officer whose 3-year-old son accidentally killed himself with his father's gun in july. th
to be the focal upon the selection. it is a state that was believed to be very accessible for mitt romney, a state that obama could hold. if he holds all six of the states in the west govern the area he is only four electoral votes short of victory. so critical for the strategy to hold the state of ohio. now, that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is broadly after a 45-point lead in the state. a few buckets of the data on the bottom you see that the worst thing for obama in 2008 was the white working-class. lost by ten points. it's up was that he would be able to expand that parging quite a bit. you wouldn't think it would have been that hard a sell. somewhat culturally conservative levels. among the hard-hit economic area. a lot of ticked off factory workers. you think it would have been an ideal place in which to sell the brand. that does not turn out to be the case. at this point we look at polls the breakout, white college and on college voters. robbie is not anywhere close to driving of that margin among working-class voters. he is, in fact, at best a few points better than w
with mitt romney. so the obama camp feels good. the issue would be right for the picking, a state that president obama carried in 2008 with all of the economic problems it should be a state that is easy to carry but it is still neck and neck giving the obama camp hope that some of the key battlegrounds where mitt romney should be breaking through, they believe he is not. >>heather: thank you, live from las vegas. >>gregg: the race for the white house entering a critical phase now. we are approaching the first presidential election. look at the latest fox news poll showing president obama holding his lead over governor romney. we will bring in our campaign insiders. representative john leboutillier, a former republican congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink th

in the swing state of colorado. governor romney said that he would honor work visas that certain young illegal immigrants obligated through an executive order by president obama. you will recall that the governor has taken an aggressive stand on immigration in this campaign. in fact, he said he would actually veto legislation that provided a path to citizen to some immigrants. governor romney said and i quote, "the people who received the special visa the president has put if place which is a two-year vision 10 should expect the visa will continue to be valid. i will not take something they have purchased o now, live to carl cameron. is this a change, carl, or a change of emphasis for the governor? >>carl: change of emphasis. in colorado, latino are an influential voting block the he has been polling in the low 30's and even high 20 but most g.o.p. strategists says to be competitive nationally he has to get 40 percent of the that tomorrow vote. he is not close. the emphasis is he will not do what in his words he said, there will not be roundups of people being deported. he was reluctant to say
it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he di

. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points, nevada by 13. new hampshire and iowa 10 respectively. colorado by nine. all the battleground states are d
